Why not watch the GRB video to access tips on CVs, applications, interviews and job hunting from recent graduates who have successfully secured work, including a London Met graduate from BA advertising, marketing communications and public relations.

The Job Shop also organises a series of events throughout the year: part-time jobs fairs, volunteering fairs and employer "pop-ups".  Details of these are posted on our Eventbrite page.

Student Circus is a niche job search platform, aiming to make the hiring of international students a seamless process for all stakeholders — universities, students, as well as employers. It includes job listings and is a one-stop-shop for all career needs of international students, so definitely worth exploring.  In addition, you may find it useful to download our information sheet on Working and studying in the UK: a guide for international students .

The digital edition of the Times Top 100 graduate employers is now available.  

The new edition includes the latest assessment of the graduate job market, full details of the UK’s top employers that will be recruiting graduates in 2023, and a special editorial section looking at how graduates across the country have progressed in their careers over the last 5 years.
